YES.

Not only do you have a high risk of pregnancy, you have an STD/STI risk.

If it's been less than 3 days since the incident (72 hours), you can get Emergency Contraception (see here: Emergency Contraception ).

If it's been 10 days or more, or you're on the first day or later of a missed period, you can take a pregnancy test. It's the only way to know whether or not you're pregnant.

AND you and your sis both need to get screened for STDs: Testing, Testing….

Here's more information that I'd suggest you both look over.

it's soon enough for you both to take a pregnancy test. go to your drugstore and get one for each of you. your "symptoms" won't tell you much, but a test will be very accurate.

also, please don't ever double post on this board. we promise we will get to your question as soon as possible. posting multipple times is just annoying and it takes up bandwidth (saving bandwidth saves $$$).

We can't give you a percentage figure, because the exact chance that you are pregnant depends on exactly when in your cycle you ovulated (among other things), and this can vary a lot.

(And unless someone is taking their body temperature daily and monitoring their cervical mucus, there's no way for them to tell when they ovulate).

In any case, right now you are either pregnant or not pregnant - there's no such thing as being "25% pregnant" or "82% pregnant" . So you and your sister need to go and get those pregnancy tests now, okay?

Pregnancy tests are pretty reliable, but they can occasionally produce false negatives. So testing again in a week or so from now would enable you to be extra sure.

Now would be a great time to take a pregnancy test. Since your period is late, you will get a reliable result.
